Parallel tracks: Skills transfer at work for colleagues and Structure in Threes book
December 11, 2014 Leave a comment
Started a skills transfer series at work yesterday “Methods in Minutes” with the idea of creating short presentations on Enterprise/Business Architecture and Management Consulting techniques I’ve collected or created over the years. Originally, I was going to collate about a dozen or so into a single methodology presentation. However, after coming to the insight that people’s attention span today has gotten much shorter in direct correlation to the time horizon on which they work –that is many colleagues are focusing on getting just today’s stuff done or at best what’s on deck for the week– decided to just create a catalog of methods at their finger tips. I’ll assemble them later into a IT Management Methodology later as the goal is to help colleagues and team-mate be productive NOW.
Sent out first method draft along with question “would this be useful” to the WW Architecture Community at Microsoft. Got a resounding “yes” as well as an excellent suggestion to post these in a share or Office365 site rather than distribute via DLs or Yammer. Looks to be a busy next year as I create and fill the catalog.
